One Piece


I have heard this comparison quite alot.... I have been thinking about checking out One Piece, but the sloppy character design kinda throws me off. I find myself wondering if it's worth to look past the *sorry for the OP fans* crappy animation. My friend says it's as epic or even more epic than Fairy Tail, but I dunno X.x

The animation is better later on and yes it's more epic than Fairy Tail and I've only watched 120 episodes, apparently it gets even better after that.

I was never really bothered by the animation in OP :/ and I saw the 4kids dubs, but OP >>> FT, by a lot, imo.
Other than that, Groove Adventure Rave too, though I recommend the manga seeing as it's longer and complete.
Dragonball is a nice choice too.
Kyou kara Maou! is a nice one as well, I liked that. It's alternative universe jumping and comedy.

Ok after I'm done with Blood+, I guess I will check it out. Anymore epic adventure animes I should know of? I checked some reviews of Groove Adventure Rave but I don't think I will like it.

One Piece is a lot like Fairy Tale, but you've already heard that : p You could try Soul Eater, though! It is really funny, lots of epic battles and lots of lovable characters, just like Fairy Tale : D And I think the drawing and animation style is quite alike.

My thing exactly. Animation is not the problem, the art itself is quite ugly. (People tend to mix art and animation).
Anyway, you get used to OP's art soon enough, and characters are wonderful, a lot better then ones in FT.
But there's no magic & stuff like that in OP, so I dunno how similar really is it.

Dude, one piece is worth a try, A friend of mine has been constantly insisting me to watch this one years ago (2002), and I finally gave it a chance this year. It's an awesome experience! Get one piece right this very moment. I'm dead serious.

As everyone has been saying One Piece is what you're looking for. I hated just about everything about One Piece, but it grew on me and I love it now (including art and character designs). I'm really picky about that kind of stuff too.

Another show that has an "epic" adventure feel is Outlaw Star. It's a bit older but has aged very well. Lots of cool stuff in this series. Kind of like a non-shounen One Piece for an older audience.

I know more good adventure anime but I wouldn't really consider them as "epic".

Well, my bad... Anyway I don't watch Fairy Tail cause it has magic, don't worry I'm not some weird wizard dude who only plays games with wizards and watches Harry Potter. It's just theres something about Fairy Tail, I can't explain it but I just want more. And due to popular demand I will give One Piece a chance!

Why not go read the manga if you don't want to watch the anime? Seeing as you have Fairy Tail, Naruto and Bleach in your favorites for manga, it's absolutely criminal you have yet to read One Piece.
My first novel, Kardia has been published! Click here to read!

It's because I don't read alot of manga and I'd rather watch anime. I have read a couple of series but at the moment the only manga series I follow are the 3 in my favourites, that doesn't mean I actually like them the most xD. (Although I do love Fairy Tail :3 )

And smokes, there are animes from that time with better art style too, not that it's anything bad that the art style was crappy. Just that it turns off some people, like me. Who are graphics freaks with games and art quality freaks with animes XD

o.o I'm disgusted with how you can even attempt to compare Fairy Tail with that third rate Anime known as "One Piece".... I tried watching 10 episodes, and it just got more boring as it went on. The animation is so much worse than Fairy Tail (And yes, I've looked at the most recent episodes, still crap animation) and the way the characters are drawn is ridiculous. Not to mention the character background is depressing @.@.

If you want to watch an anime that's as amazing and "epic" as Fairy Tale, give Mahou Sensei Negima, and the rest of it's sequel and prequel series, a try. Also, another good one I have come across is History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi (Also known as Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple). Good luck to you.

Well, I can't talk much about One Piece since I only saw like 5 episodes - but to me they were boring.

On topic:If you wanna see something epic with magic try Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu. Characters are not as great as those in Fairy Tail but the story is making up for it.

Truthfully, when I first saw Fairy Tail, I instantly thought of One Piece. So I too suggest One Piece.

Rave Master (Groove Adventure Rave) is the work made before Fairy Tail, by the same author. I have read the manga (nearly completed), and I presume the anime doesn't differ too much.

Kenichi is great as well. It didn't give me the same feel as Fairy Tail, but it is thoroughly enjoyable, hilarious, and amazing.

I also would like to recommend Soul Eater.
only big difference is that they use weapons instead of magic

I wanna thank everyone who suggested One Piece. Sorry if this is reviving an old topic, just that I finished watching it and reading the manga and it is a masterpiece. Thanks everyone!

I suggest One Piece because for some reasons it comes up to me when i started to watch the first episode.Since some others of you think One Piece is boring watch all the episode to 520.Then you'll think the same.Even though One Piece dosent use magic, its still similar to Fairy Tail. Hope you agree afterwards.

Fairytaill is pretty bad, not that hard to get a better anime.

I think you would like Capeta, legend of the legendary heroes, and fate/zeo

I had to make an account, just to post on this! ARE YOU SERIOUS! Fairy Tail has to be one of the most epic animes I have EVER watched. And I'm watched a lot. The character building, the story line, the music, everything is so amazing! I just finished Episode 151, waiting for more D:
But I couldn't stand reading all of these comments saying that there could be something more epic than fairy tail. NOTHING COULD.

I need a new anime to watch while I wait for my beloved fairy tail. But nothing could ever compare to it. after episode 80 or so, the story line because truly AMAZING and heartfelt. The love they share for their friends, the relationships building. It's what a truly epic anime is meant to be.


That is all.

I cant believe that i had to do an account to write a comment (´Д` ), but anyway, as everyone said, i would sugest one piece, but i would also sugest the following:

Kyo kara maoh
Denetsu no yuusha no denetsu/legend of the legendary heroes
Historys strongest deciple kenichi
Soul eater
Eyeshield 21 (not about magic or anything, still good ☆〜(ゝ。∂))
Bleach
1/2 prince ( YOU MUST WATCH THIS, THIS ANIME IS AMAZING o(&gE;▽&lE;)o )
Magi
Shaman king
Sugar sugar rune
Elemental gelade
Nabari no ou

This is what i sugest, but some of them may not contain magic 'n stuff, but i sugest them in any case because i think we have the same taste o(^▽^)o
YOLO

First off REALLY!?! FAIRY TAIL ROCKS! Second off I have to agree I watch many Animes and none have touch me as much as Fairy Tail also. I do recommend Soul Eater. It is a great and with fun characters. Pretty good art style but they use magic weapon people instead of magic(P.S. Natsu Rules!!!!) Also when looking up Soul Eater not get it confused with Soul Eater Not.
